"MCA (Hardlines) is a good job if the hours are available."

Current Employee - MCA Hardlines in Pittsburgh, PA

I have been working at Sears full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

Steady shifts each week
Almost always work mornings and never Saturdays
Stay busy
No constant supervision

Cons

Once the holidays are over your hours are cut drastically.

Advice to Management

Don't preach if you can't deliver. I was told when I was hired that hours were always available and that I would never dip below a certain amount. Not true!

    I worked at Sears part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I liked working at Sears because most of the customers that came in were very friendly. The people I worked with tended to be a variety of young and old but all were friendly and chatty. We also had multiple options in order to achieve a high customer satisfaction.

    Cons

    Except for the tools section, the store seemed to die out a lot. The only thing to pass time is to zone your area which doesn't take much time. It was frustrating that they didn't let us bring a book or something to help pass the time.

    Advice to Management

    Find a way to motivate your workers positively instead of having negative conenquences
